HEADS UP, CREATIVES: IF YOU’RE THINKING OF LAUNCHING SOMETHING IN 2024

(ESPECIALLY AMID ECONOMIC UNCERTAINTY), IT’S CRUCIAL YOU READ THIS!

PSST—

Strategize, organize, & craft marketing content that power-glides into your upcoming launch with

Primed to Launch™: the ultimate editorial calendar playbook + launch planning system.

it's time to throw up a peace sign:

Back, back, back it up away from that folder full of idea prompt banks & content caption templates ...

... the Trello list of to-do's some ~launch strategist~ handed you ...


... & the content theme (or "topic bucket") rotation game..

Simply put?

BUT, if you find yourself in a rhythm hamster wheel of content creation that—while fab for seasons of serving—isn't naturally on-ramping into your launch or planting seeds to harvest later as ca$h money in the bank ...

... we GOTTA talk.

Bc nope: Serving up juicy free content doesn't mean the scales magically tip one day in favor of people forking over cash when you launch.

Even if "launch" is just a fancy-pants word for “marketing campaign"—

Launching is ... kinda daunting.

So adhering to the some launch strategist's "juSt PoSt tHis!" schedule, asking for the sale without any kind of multi-week campaign runway, & posting content for content's sake ... ?

*fans self*

Woof.

Not to mention you're asking people to PAY you in the time of economic weirdness & launching when even Cardi B's complaining about the price of groceries?

It's ... all tall order.

THE PROBLEM WITH ALL OF THOSE TOOLS?

Until you look up and realize your content & launches

aren't driving the bottom line of your creative business.

And if you're not leveraging persuasive copywriting & storytelling in your campaigns

during a time when you're likely fighting for the very survival of your creative business ...

... then PHONE DOWN TO Houston,

BC we've gotS a problem.

Le sigh.

ESPECIALLY if you've got dreams of launching something big in 2023.

→ Here are the 3 most dangerous lies creative business owners hear every day













Eh. Keeping up with a steady prompt bank of "the perfect mix" is exhausting (at least for some of us, if you can do it for 365 days & love life, you do you, boo).

But heads up: social media + content posting ISN'T your marketing calendar, it's part of the campaign vehicle. Your content strategy needs to stand on its own—and no, having monthly "themes" doesn't count.













Keeping up with a steady spreadsheet rotation of "the perfect mix" is exhausting (at least for some of us, if you can do it for 365 days & love life, you do you, boo). Like I said, social media + content posting ISN'T your marketing calendar, it's part of the campaign vehicle. Your content strategy needs to stand on its own—and no, monthly "themes" don't count.

lolololol—have you seen my accounts??

YES, you need to show up consistently. But if you don't WANT to post 365 days? Or even every other day? There's an argument to be made for quality over quantity.

I built a half-million dollar copywriting business in 3 years (mil in 5), and I'd rather be with my kids + husband at the taco joint than tapping away at my Macbook. Real life > internet life. You do you (and do it consistently!), but you don't have to be all the places all the time every day.

Missing out on the pressure cooker that a good launch can be!?

YIKES.

^^ this is one of the #1 mistakes I see creative entrepreneurs making. If you're NOT yet launching your services, it's time to start building a pressurized marketing campaign around them now.

SEE RELATED—

“I launched a new website/offer/course ... but uh, it definitely didn't feel like my T-Swift-album-drop business-building moment.”

“I have a rhythm of content categories. I schedule posts for the week. I write a month's worth of captions in one sitting. But my launches fall flat. Is it me?? Hi, I'm the problem bc it MUST be me ... "

“I listen to my people, and then base my content around the themes that will likely get the most traction. Eventually, the 'free' content scales tip in my favor—right??”

“I fail to meet my booking goal every year. I have no clue what else I can do to get more clients for my services. I’m rocking a pretty new website with witty words so I’m hoping that will do magic for me.”

"I bought a launch planner/attended a "launch camp" online. I tried it. But ... no one seemed to care—or even notice—that I was selling my bootie off. I have nada sales to show for it."

IF EVEN JUST ONE OF THOSE STATEMENTS JABS YOU RIGHT IN THE FEELS

& HITS HOME, IT'S TIME TO...

… leverage a concept breezy to understand that my dad could understand it—and he still signs all his text messages. 🥹

It's time to use this single-most effective 🚀 launch campaign strategy to

produce mass sales-driving content in less time.

Aka what MOST content calendar plans & Launch experts won't tell you about buzz-building ...

If your content strategy isn't built upon a measurable marketing strategy or annual revenue plan, it's a sand-castle blueprint. ⬅️⬅️ I learned that in corporate marketing ... entrepreneurship simply sealed the deal.

Following a done-for-you launch plan, consistent posting, & even pretty graphics? That trifecta does NOT automatically equate launch success.

QUIT THINKING THAT MORE IS BETTER WHEN IT COMES TO LAUNCHING—OR CONTENT CREATION IN GENERAL.

IT'S NOT.

I emoji-heart eye love digital marketing. 😍 I love magazine-like editorial content. I freggin' LOVE copywriting. All decided 0.2 seconds after building my first blog at Southern Living magazine in 2009.

But 13+ years later? I've realized I don't want to create more noise in this overfilled digital world (let’s call it “ethical content & copywriting” … is that a thing? It is now.).

Because I love THE INTERNET ... BUT I LOVE the rhythms of life offline, off-launch season even more.

And the more I build my small business & work as a launch copywriter,

it's obvious to me: when you’re not in launch, you’re in pre-launch.

⬆️ THIS IS THE PART OF LAUNCHING & MARKETING MOST CREATIVES SKIP ⬆️

SO AS I BUILT UP MY COPYWRITING BUSINESS? IT HIT ME:

I had my content + launch campaign breakthrough:

What if I started with sales metrics I NEED to hit to pay myself,

crafted a persuasive annual marketing plan backwards (and on the publishing platforms I liked), & crafted as little new, out-of-the-box content as possible ...

... & made it only ~seem~ like I was everywhere?

I tried it for a year.

Then two.

Then 4.

I taught it to small coaching group of creatives to see if they could get results.

I walked 1-on-1 clients through it.

It ... worked.

Things were catching on, so naturally, I prettied it up with a cocktail party ready name. 🍾✏️

I DUBBED it

Here's what I did—

START BY DEFINING "ENOUGH"

Pair your financial blueprint WITH your promotional calendar of 4 seasonal marketing campaigns: plot how you'll hit your numbers and then REST ... because like you can't guzzle a fancy flute of bubbles daily, you ALSO can't sell 24/7.

CREATE A RHYTHM OF FOUR TOAST-WORTHY, PERSUASION-PACKED LAUNCH CAMPAIGNS

Build the system backwards, fill your launch planner with pillar content, and spend 80% of the time promoting what took 20% of your time to create for your campaigns ... so you don't go flat.


CRAFT A SPARKLING, SUSTAINABLE CONTENT SYSTEM AROUND THAT

Because bubbly is fun, but it's not for everyday—neither is selling. Map out what's necessary, and fill in the gaps with nice-to-have mini-campaigns (and repurpose like a boss).

There IS an actual strategy behind content marketing if you want to be profitable

not just consistent & followed.

This is mine.

And it works.

After all—your launch cash flow? It's lifeblood for your small business

There is no Plan B.

Which begs the question:


When it’s time to remember why you started down this crazy, beloved path ...

... (when it would be so much easier to grab the box of Cheez-its & binge-watch Cheer again on Netflix) ...


... it's time to get consistent with a

SUSTAINABLE launch marketing plan.
